Desert Storm : 30 years later
France

 

Kuwait is known for its oil, the Gulf War, the Daguet division and the "Desert Storm" operation. But most people do not hear about its rich history, heritage and architecture. It is a country where more than 90% of the population lives in its capital, Kuwait City, where the demolition of many historic sites has taken on such epic proportions that soon, no trace of history will remain erected, leaving room for even more new buildings, malls and other business centers. 2021 will be the 60th anniversary of the country's independence and the 30th anniversary of the end of the Gulf War. With the help of professor Hasan Ashkanani, this series aims to tell the history of the country and its people, and build a cultural archive composed of images and testimonies of a heritage soon to disappear. As the texts are attached to the images, we are unable to display the english version of the testimonies.

 

This is an ongoing project therefore some interviews are still being translated and additional meetings are planned after the covid-19 restrictions. In the meantime, Lorem Ipsum text has been inserted.
